Welcome back to our blog! Here at Eclipse, a premier Boulder dispensary, we are devoted to providing you with the best cannabis products and the latest in cannabis education. Today, we’ll be steering our focus over to the department of concentrates once again — this time, for the sugar concentrate.

Follow along to learn all about this incredible product and why we’re loving it.

Understanding Cannabis Concentrates

As a review, cannabis concentrates are highly potent extracts derived from the cannabis plant. They contain high concentrations of cannabinoids such as THC and CBD, as well as aromatic compounds called terpenes. Typically, these concentrates are produced using various extraction methods to isolate and concentrate the desired compounds from the plant material.

The extraction methods play a crucial role in determining the quality, potency, and characteristics of cannabis concentrates. Different extraction techniques offer unique advantages and drawbacks.

Solvent-based methods like butane extraction or CO2 extraction, as well as solventless methods like rosin pressing or ice water hash extraction, influence factors such as purity, terpene retention, and overall product quality.

In addition, there is a wide range of cannabis concentrates, each with its own unique properties and characteristics. These include wax, shatter, budder, live resin, distillate, and sugar, among others, each distinguished by its texture, consistency, potency, and flavor profile.

This variety offers consumers a diverse array of options to explore based on their preferences and desired effects. With that said, we’ll be focusing solely on the sugar concentrate today; so let’s get into it!

Sugar Concentrates: An In-Depth Look

Sugar concentrates, also known as “sugar wax” or “budder,” are a type of cannabis concentrate characterized by their granular or crystalline texture. They are typically produced through a combination of heat and agitation during the extraction process.

This encourages the formation of sugar-like crystals within the concentrate, resulting in a product with a unique texture and appearance, often prized for its potency and flavor.

Several factors can influence the formation of sugar crystals in cannabis concentrates, such as the starting material used for extraction and the specific extraction techniques employed, as well as factors such as temperature, humidity, and agitation during post-processing.

By manipulating these variables, extractors can achieve different textures and consistencies in their sugar concentrates, ranging from wet, “saucy” sugars to dry, crumbly “sugar wax.”

Pros and Cons of Sugar Concentrates


  • These concentrates are prized by many cannabis enthusiasts for their potent effects, robust flavor profiles, and ease of use.
  • Their granular texture makes them easy to handle and manipulate, whether dabbing, vaping, or incorporating into edibles.
  • Since they often retain a high concentration of terpenes, they often have a complex aroma and flavor.


  • While sugar concentrates offer many benefits, they also come with some potential drawbacks. One concern is stability, as sugar concentrates can degrade over time if not stored properly.
  • Excessive exposure to heat, light, or air can cause the crystals to melt or lose their potency.
  • Additionally, some users may find the granular texture of sugar concentrates less appealing compared to smoother, more uniform extracts like shatter or distillate.

Popular Sugar Concentrate Products

We feature two reputable brands here at Eclipse that specialize in producing high-quality sugar concentrates. They offer a variety of strains and flavors to choose from, ensuring that consumers can find a product that best suits their taste preferences and desired effects:

Kush Masters: As the marketplace became saturated with companies cutting corners and corporatizing, the owner, Josh, created Kush Masters to be family run and operated. Their goal? Elevate the cannabis experience without elevating the price or the bull. As of late, we have been loving their Sundae Float strain of live sugar. Check it out here!
